New Grudge Match movie got very negative reviews from top critics. Warner Bros. Pictures released their new comedy/drama flick, “Grudge Match” into theaters this past Wednesday, December 25th, and the reviews from the top critics in the biz, weren’t very nice to say the least.

Odie Henderson at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 63 score, stating, “Grudge Match belongs to a fast-growing genre I’ll call “Senior Citizen Action Porn,” or SCAP. Proud members of SCAP include “Red” and its sequel, “Red 2,” the “Expendables” series, and the best of the 2013 crop, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The Last Stand.”

Mark Olsen at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score. He said, ” Grudge Match never settles on the movie it wants to be, wavering uncertainly between a jokey old-guys comedy and something more dramatic and heartfelt.” Tom Russo at the Boston Globe, gave it a 50, stating, ” Stallone and De Niro simply don’t generate enough combative spark to make this anything more than an amiably mediocre diversion.” Read more »

New ’47 Ronin’ movie got very bad reviews from top movie critics,new details. Universal Pictures released their new fantasy/action flick, “47 Ronin,” into theaters on December 24th, and the reviews from the top movie critics are in.

The movie stars: Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano, and Rinko Kikuchi.

Sara Stewart at the New York Post, gave it a mediocre 50 score, stating, “There’s little sense of urgency, or — oddly, given the film’s title — of scale. You never really think that the 47 are truly outnumbered, and the large action scenes are often just incomprehensible.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it another 50 score. She said: “While the visuals are lovely to behold, this unremarkable version of the classic 18th century Japanese legend is stiff and uninvolving.” Nicolas Rapold from the New York Times, gave it a 40 score, stating, “47 Ronin can’t entirely paper over the void at its center, traceable partly to the shadowboxing of computer-aided filmmaking or studio tinkering.” Read more »
